McCleod Express, based in Decatur, Illinois is one of the nation's leading trucking companies. I/T Director Derek Agar uses Weather Defender Commercial Edition to track the location of the company's 340 semi units and 775 trailers on a real-time weather map:
How It Works
Derek integrates an in-house fleet tracking database with Weather Defender's built-in Dynamic Layers functionality to auto-update the location of fleet vehicles inside Weather Defender.
Weather can be tracked with a click of a button such as Radar, Snow and Sleet alerts, and Severe Thunderstorm Watches & Warnings to name a few threats to transportation companies.

"During the outbreak of the tornados this week-end. I decided to buy it. I live in Joplin, Missouri area. Last year we were devastated in the F-5 tonrado. Weather Defender this week-end gave me the comfort and knowledge to know that I was on the frontline getting information first hand as it happened. I did not have to wait on delayed weather reports of what was coming our way. I knew what was happening NOW. I could look in ever direction and receive firsthand radar reports of ongoing storms miles and hours away from me. After last years May 22 tornado in Joplin and losing so much. Weather Defender has made our lives less stressful just knowing we are in control of our safety firsthand. Thank You."
